I've been away from this site for this season because my pool has been lovely and with the BBB method I've not had as many panic moments as in the past.
I just replace ALL my water and 'bought' the pool a new batch of water this week. I'm not sure but I think the YEARS of BBB cause a raise in the salt (5 on the test strip) to the point no one wanted to swim due to the high salty taste. I finally broke down and did a COMPLETE refill. Having done that, I'm back to square one on my numbers and getting things back in balanced.
I have some questions about TEST KITS:
I purchased mine quite a while ago (2009?) and have made due with this and that over the years but really want to go back to the full kit again. What is the expected 'shelf-life' of the TF100 (I think that's what it's called).
Has this site stopped selling the kits? I don't see it listed under the STORE tab.
Can I just get replacement chemicals? Or since it's been so long do I need to replace all the components (vials and tubes), too?
I'm so glad to see this site is still thriving. It's the BEST!
